The Long-Awaited Trailer for 42

5:49 pm in Movies & TV by Jason Baskey

The long-awaited biopic, 65 years in the making, finally comes to theatres next year. 42 is the story of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play major league baseball. The trailer definitely looks epic, but the critics out there seem to have an issue with the Jay-Z soundtrack being not “period-specific”. What do you guys think?

42 hits theaters on April 12th, 2013.
